For those that don’t know about this here’s what went down.
Obama’s Special Olympics joke mars Leno appearance
I was awaiting his first major screw up on television and boy does this count.
For those of you who don’t know by now, I am disabled. I have Spinal Muscular Atrophy which falls under Muscular Dystrophy and I have two opinions on this issue.
First, any mention of something brings attention to it. Its PR for the sake of PR. I myself and people I know are forever making disabled jokes. One of my friends, who isn’t disabled, bought me a shirt that says “i’m not disabled, i’m just lazy” among other jokes from time to time. So it brings attention to it.
Second, as President he really should know better and this proves his inexperience in politics. Would he be OK if someone referred to him as President Spade or if someone made a degrading reference to him? NO, he’d be flipping through the roof of the White House.
We as a society have to get the stick out of our ass and stop being so sensitive to little shit like this and use of the N-word by people who aren’t African Americans AND stop treating Obama like a celebrity and start threatening him with impeachment if he doesn’t start doing the job he was elected to do and fix the issues like the poor economy and such.
